GEOS 5660 - Geological Field Studies

This course introduces students to the tectonic setting, rock types, geologic history, geologic hazards and resources, landforms, and surficial processes found throughout the Michigan region. Field observations will be used in conjunction with previous classroom lessons to develop a more complete understanding of landscape evolution, rock-forming processes, and structural rock-deformation. Emphasis will be placed on how various observations are combined to make geological interpretations, and how the geological history and evolution of a region can be interpreted from field data. There is a multi-day, overnight field trip required.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: GEOS 5650 and (GEOS 3350 or GEOS 3010), or instructor approval. GEOS 5650 may be taken concurrently. A grade of “C” or better is required to satisfy any course prerequisite.
